CreateSearchShape is a convenient function that helps you select features that fall near a specific point. This function creates a small geometry around the required point parameter that can then be used by a spatial filter to select features. The size of the geometry created around the point is controlled by the focus map's search tolerance (IMxDocument::SearchTolerancePixels).
The returned IGeometry reference is to a new Envelope object.
